Our drivers choose the trips they are able to take and make a significant difference in the lives of seniors and those with a disability. During the pandemic the majority of our trips are to bring essentials to individuals who are unable to get groceries, food boxes, prescriptions etc. We also are able to provide rides to individuals getting their COVID vaccination.
We help others get to necessary appointments, attend social events, grocery shop and participate in outings that help with their physical and emotional health.
